Revel in Shirley's home baking available from 'An Cisean Aran' (the bread basket) in Arklow for the farm fresh food for which Wicklow, 'The Garden of Ireland', is famous. Step back in time to Hunter's Hotel in Rathnew, an old stage coach inn now famous for its afternoon tea of cucumber sandwiches & cake on the lawn.
